hello, (regarding I-129F)

I was hoping to get some advice in what I should write on the "original statements from you and your fiancee whom you plan to marry within 90 days of his/her admission, and copies of any evidence you wish to submit to establish your mutual intent"

.....what should this look like???

Also if you read part D on the I129-F paperwork there is a paragraph right above your signature stating the same thing. I didn't add the letter as the gov't forms did not list it as a required document.

I sent it in the same format as the example letter on VJ.com Karin and Otto's reply has the link. I added one extra sentence about how long we have known each other but it was short and simple. Seemed to work!

we sent d same format on where u will address the letter of intent..but our letter is more like a letter without formal pattern..the important thing is that u should include the key words for this letter like getting married within 90 days etc. then your intention why and when do u plan to marry ur fiancee...then of course the most important is to get it notarized.good luck and god bless you..=)

Notarized??? is it really necessary for the letter of intent to be notarized? I just mailed my letter of intent and G-325A form to my fiance (petitioner). I signed it but that was it. i didn't bother to have it notarized since i have not seen anything in the I-129F instructions that specified submitting a notarized letter of intent. Even the sample here in VJ did not suggest anything of the sort sad.gif ... or did i just miss that part completely?.. now im getting worried sad.gif

This is false.
You do not need to get the letter(s) of intent notarized.
Best of luck to you! smile.gif

I need to know the answer to this also. Where do you find the Service Center address? Is there a list of them somewhere which I am missing? Can someone post the link to the addresses please?

How do you know what your USCIS is? You have no idea where your case is assigned when you send it into the Dallas lockbox,correct?

Is there a list of the acronyms everyone here is using? As far as I have seen there is no list of any of these. The first page of the "help" K-1 Visa forums has no reference to what any of them actually mean but use them in many places.

It might be helpful if there was a list pinned that explained them all. If I am just missing the list then can someone help me out and point me to it?
